If you’re new to wedding photography, you may forget to bring some things. You should learn your lesson, so you won’t make the same mistake in the future as personal photographer to your family and friends. Here are the wedding photography things you need to have:

  • At Least Two Cameras

Of course, you won’t be able to do anything at the event if you didn’t bring a camera. It would be a splendid idea to bring a backup camera in case something happens to the one you have. You never know when it might malfunction or lose battery.

  • Speedlights

If the wedding is held at night, it would be best to use an external flash. This is one time when you can’t rely on the flash of the camera alone. Besides, you may regret it if you found out you captured dark images of the guests when the event is over.

  • Extra Memory Cards and Batteries

Since the event is expected to last at least 5 to 6 hours, you should bring many memory cards and batteries for wedding photography task. Besides, you don’t want to run out of battery when something important is happening like when they say their vows and have their first dance as a married couple.

  • Camera Bag

Where will you put all your equipment? You need to make sure your camera bag is big enough to contain all your stuff. Of course, you should also feel very comfortable in carrying it whilst you move around the event throughout the day.

For your event to surely be a success, hire wedding photography professionals. Since they’re already used to covering big events, they already know what to bring and they’ll check if they have everything needed before they go to the event. They’ll also make sure to arrive ahead of time so that they won’t miss out on all the important shots. Best of all, you can give your input on the specific shots you want to be captured during the event.
